NEW DELHI, July 5 (UPI) -- Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani says his nation was not involved the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that killed 166 people.

Jilani, following two days in talks with Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathaihis in New Delhi, denied allegations Thursday by Indian Home Minister Chidambaram Palaniappan, who accused Pakistan's government of supporting the terror attacks, the Voice of America reported.

"We reject any insinuation against any state agencies of Pakistan in any terror attack in India ... Pakistan is even willing for a joint investigation into Mumbai attacks," Jilani said at a news conference in the Indian capital.

Jilani is asking India to share information about terror suspect Zabiuddin Ansari, also known as Abu Jundal, who has claimed the attacks were coordinated in Pakistan and received state support.
